  There are still a few hollows in the East Fork area still missing from my collection. Two on the west side still to be visited are Thomas Hollow and Lee Hollow. Breakfast was at Denny's in Russellville at 3:30 a.m. and it was tasty as usual. Just west of Nail on Hwy 16 is Union Grove Rd. Vehicle parking was had 1.3 miles north at Union Grove Cemetery. By 5:15 I was hiking towards the East fork down Thomas Hollow. Skies were clear with no wind and 50°. At the bluff line a small waterfall was encountered and just downstream a side creek dropped in to form John Thomas Falls. The sun was just rising as I made my way around the top of the bluff near the East Fork of the Little Buffalo. 
  The bluff line was best in Lee Hollow. It was traced back to the west as a few clouds joined the once clear horizon. The spring day warmed to 72° by the time the cemetery was met once more around 11:30. Settlers from the mid 1800's were buried here. Most had only primitive stone markers with no inscriptions. John Thomas was probably there somewhere. Total distance was 6 miles. No skunks were deployed during this outing.
